LAUNCH OF QUESTIONNAIRE TO

GATHER BASELINE DATA ABOUT

SOCIAL ENTERPRISE IN IRELAND

As you will have read in August’s SE-News, a baseline social enterprise research

project is being delivered on behalf of the Department of Rural and Community

Development by  Amárach Research, in partnership with Social Enterprise Republic

of Ireland (SERI) and the Irish Local Development Network (ILDN).

An online questionnaire is launching today. All social enterprises are encouraged

to complete the questionnaire which will be distributed by network and support

organisations. If you have not received your link yet, then you can access the

questionnaire using the link below:

This is the first national opportunity for social enterprises to provide evidence from

the sector that will better inform all stakeholders.  This exercise will identify key

data such as the total number of social enterprises  in Ireland, their regional spread,

the primary sectors they are active in, their staffing levels and traded income.

 

This research will ensure the Department is in a much better position to support the

sector  and develop social enterprise policy, with a strong and robust evidence base.
